Speeches on a wide range of topics including charity laws and finance will offer specialist information and help generate new ways forward.

Hosting the event will be the High Steward of Banbury, Sir Tony Baldry, and town mayor Cllr John Colegrave.

Guest speakers will include delegates from Volunteer Connect, Charity Ninjas, Spratt Endicott, Cherwell and South Northants Council, Charity Mentors, and Oxfordshire Community Foundation.
